Writerly Wednesday: A Little Adventure Goes a Long Way

Welcome to another edition of Writerly Wednesday. This week TB shares about how she deals with burnout.

A Little Adventure Goes a Long Way

The start to 2022 has been manic on my end. I’ve been trying to combat Amazon’s ranking issues to keep a new release visible. On the writing front, I’ve been penning new episodes for A London Love Story, a Kindle Vella series, and adding chapters in Two of a Kind. Both projects are cowrites with Miranda MacLeod.

On the IHL front, we launched the 2022 IHL Sapphic Reading Challenge, and we just completed the first 99-cent sale of the year.

On Friday, February 11th, which was the first day of the sale, I was at the end of my rope, and there was a little whining on my morning call with Miranda (she might tell you there was a lot of whining). There was a slice of sunlight in the not-so-distant future. The following day, I’d planned an adventure with Pepper, my little red car.

When I got into the car, the temperature was barreling toward the mid-fifties. The radio station was playing all 80s. Hardly anyone was on the back roads in Central Massachusetts. While the hiking trails were still ice hazards, the roads were pretty clear, so I turned up the volume on the radio and drove west to one of my favorite spots.

It was exactly what I needed. Time outside of the apartment without the bone-chilling temps we’ve been experiencing for the past six weeks. The scenery was beautiful. While I didn’t take a ton of photos, where are a few to give you an idea.

Not only that, I stopped at one of my favorite farm stores to stock up on apples, raw honey (which I put it in my tea), and beers from local breweries (which I do not put in my tea).

On Sunday morning, the snow returned as predicted, however my little adventure put me in a better mood and there might be less grumbling on my morning calls with Miranda.
